While Madge and Guy were partying, thieves were robbing millions next doorSeptember 13th, 2008 - 6:34 pm ICT by ANI
London, September 13 (ANI): While all eyes were set on a glamorous bash to celebrate Hollywood director Guy Ritchies 40th birthday in a pub he owns, robbers carried out a multi-million-pound heist at a nearby BT exchange.
In just under an hour, they made off with telecommunications equipment, including cables and telephone cards, worth an estimated two million pounds.
None of the guests at the party being held at the Punchbowl pub in Londons Mayfair noticed anything suspicious.
Though Guy partied on until the early hours on Wednesday with an Irish band he had hired, his wife Madonna and their children Lourdes, 12, Rocco, eight, and adopted David, two, slipped away to the familys nearby townhouse at 10.
The raiders did not trigger the security system.
Cops have not made any arrest thus far.
Guests at the party included Stings wife Trudie Styler, David Gest, and Kate Mosss boyfriend Jamie Hince. (ANI)
